    I took the rest of the day off and tomorrow, to make a nice long weekend. Perhaps I will do a study on the effects of Rum or Scotch on me in Jan '05. I'm thinking I should start on this as soon as possible. After all, we don't want to have too small of a sample size, people might complain about the results of the study.

    RFS62, we both know the scary thing is, some of those tips we gave LF last night have actually worked for us at one time. Women, those lines, and alcohol, it can be such a beautiful thing.

    I saw some pretty sad stuff this morning, and I will definitely be testing out the soothing qualities of the old Grey Goose and Tonic tonight.

    Re: Be the last person to post on this thread

    Oil is your car’s blood, which is why I religiously change mine every three to ten months, give or take.

    Last time, the guy underneath says there’s oil everywhere and my main seal is leaking. I tell him, okay, go ahead and fix it. He looks at me askance, and says, “No, no, no. You gotta call the dealer about that.”

    After a week, I remember that I haven’t done that yet.

    Two weeks after that, my dashboard’s “Oil” light comes on. I pour a quart of oil in. The light goes out.

    Repeat for a month.

    Last week, I call the dealer and make an appointment to bring it in. The soonest he could see me was the following Tuesday. Grrr.

    Bright and early on Tuesday, I show up at the crack of dawn and drop off my car. He says they’ll check it out and call me when they know something. I ask for a ride to work. He says no problem and sends me to the waiting room.

    Forty minutes go by; just me, Regis, and some employees. Finally their driver appears. Grrr.

    Seven hours later, no one has called. It’s four o’clock. I have no car. I have to go home soon. I call the dealer. He says they just started looking at it, and he’ll call back soon. Grrr.

    “Soon” meant an hour and a half later, when he calls and says I don’t need a main seal. I need a head gasket. Big job. Could take a day and a half. “You’ve had the day, and I need may car,” I say. He says that if I leave it with them, that’d help them get the car done by Wednesday evening. I agree to let them have it, and convince a colleague to give me a ride home and pick me up in the morning.

    At 8:15 a.m., my colleague does not show up. At 8:40, I call the office and get his voicemail. At 9:00, I ask the receptionist if she’s seen him around. Why yes, he’s been wandering around all morning. Grrr.

    By 4:00, the dealer has not yet seen fit to call and give me a status report. I call. I go into voicemail. At 4:45, no one has returned my call. I call again. I’m told my rep has gone for the day. I’m put on hold. My rep somehow manages to pick up. He tells that my car isn’t ready, and won’t be until Thursday by lunch. I spew bile through the telephone so vile that I’ve had to requisition a new mouthpiece. The rep agrees to give me a loaner, but I have to come get it. (You have my car, jackass! How am I supposed to come get it? You’re surrounded by 300 cars, jackass!) Grrr.

    The promised “Thursday by lunch” arrives. No phone call. Thursday by 3:00 arrives. No phone call. I call the rep. The car won’t be done until tomorrow. They’re still working on it, and they want to put some miles on it before they give it back, you know, for safety’s sake.

    Isn’t that nice of them?

    It's true. And it's all in the delivery.

    I was expecting you to repeat one you posted a long time ago, the one about barely touching your fingers to your lips to moisten your fingertips, then touching your partners sholder and saying "Hey, we need to get you out of those wet clothes"

    I love that one.

    Replacing a head gasket takes all of 30 minutes, if you have the part and if one of your hands is tied behind your back.

    Redsland, its times like this that call for drastic measures.

    I'd call the dealer and try to get the highest ranking person there. Preferably the owner. Maybe look up his home number.

    Then I go thermonuclear, non-linear, and postal, all at once.

    I did that with Sears about a year ago. I got my own private hot line to call.

    Hey Redsland, I'm thinking if you stick around long enough, WOY will post a recipe on how to replace head gaskets. It didn't sound too far off from that last recipe.
